What do you love about teaching? 

There is something so special about coming together, in a community. I am inspired by the experiences that unfold as we explore the sometimes-challenge of movement & stillness within the practice. I love the beautiful opportunity to connect to our own individual bodies and the power of our breath; I hope to create the space to allow each of us to listen in and hear our true inner voice … and to just have some joy & fun!

What yoga trainings have you completed?

I completed my Modo Level 1 training in Brazil, Modo Flow in Kelowna, and Modo Advanced & Yin in Costa Rica, and Modo Calm. I’ve also done trainings in Chair Yoga, All Body’s/Curvy Yoga, Breathwork, Trauma Informed Yoga, Anti-Oppression work, and Anti-Racism Response Training (A.R.T.), and multiple Breathwork-Facilitator trainings.

What Modo Pillar do you connect with the most?

Be Accessible – I feel like it’s an envelope for all the pillars. “A place for all” builds community, which creates deeper connection to each other and the planet. Through this connection we can learn and support each other, which contributes to greater collective wellbeing.

What do you do besides teaching yoga?

I feel very fortunate for the work I get to do … at the studio and as an ASL Interpreter, which I love! Outside of work, I enjoy listening to music and podcasts, being in nature and around water, whether it’s the ocean or long bath. I also have amazing family and friends in my life so time with them is well spent.

What’s your favourite after yoga treat?

How do you pick just one!?! For yummy Mexican food Sal y Limon & Los Cuervos, or if I feel like a cozy dinner, Les Faux Bourgeois.
